Every SI motorised screen can now be powered and controlled via any type of low-voltage wire

Screen Innovations has announced the expansion of its low-voltage motor technology across its entire line of motorised screens. The manufacturer of optical screen and shade materials originally rolled out the technology in 2017 to a few products in its portfolio but, now, every SI motorised screen can be powered and controlled via any type of low-voltage wire, including Cat-5 and two-conductor speaker wire.

Two products to receive this new technology are Janus and Fontus. Janus delivers power and control for up to eight low-voltage screens, reportedly in 75% less space than its competitors. It is a dual-sided product with both UTP and terminal blocks (5x 3.8mm) and is capable of supplying power and control for any type of wire. Janus provides a scalable infrastructure via bus in/out and up to 100 SDN power units with a built-in bus power supply. With redundant power options, RS-485 segmented outputs and more than 100 mounting configurations, the screen measures 216mm x 155mm x 43mm (LxWxH).

Fontus supports the connection of screens to a power/control source over any type of two-conductor wire. It also interfaces with Janus to convert RS-485 communication and power over five-conductor wire to only two conductors. It provides full two-way control, while full power is maintained using the manufacturer’s BCP encoding and decoding protocol. Capable of many types of control including IR, 12V trigger and DCT, Fontus includes two dry contact closures and a wet contact closure for use with control systems. It is a plug-and-play unit with a 12V trigger for use with projectors, can be powered from any RS-485 motor and can receive power via any 7–28V DC supply.
